Verse one or two of You Never Give Me Your Money ?  

Verse two. I like the whole ‘I never give you my number, I only give you my situation’ bit, the singer admits he’s just as bad as the other. I dunno. mccartney-shrug_01_gif

The Night Before or Yesterday ?

That’s a very hard choice, but I’m going to have to go with Yesterday . It may be overplayed, but I still love it. heart

Run Of The Mill or Behind That Locked Door ?

Isn't he a bit like you and me?

Run Of The Mill , no contest. (Sorry, BTLD.) It’s just so profound and musically wonky like George’s teeth. Olivia has said it’s her favourite because it’s just the most George, and I’m inclined to agree.

Massively overplayed solo-Beatle-songs: My Sweet Lord or Imagine ?

Amazing song. Very underrated (although maybe the title has something to do with it?)

Imagine . It definitely deserves it, though. 

John or Ringo’s outfit in the IATW music video?

Isn't he a bit like you and me?

I prefer John’s outfit because it’s more colorful, though Ringo’s is certainly fine.

Chains or Roll Over Beethoven ?

Oh that’s tough, they’re both marvelous… I’d have to say Roll Over Beethoven though, it’s a) more iconic and b) a better song.

Don’t Pass Me By or Octopus’s Garden ?

Octopus’s Garden . George’s guitar + the production in general paul-mccartney-thumb_gifpaul-mccartney-thumb_gifpaul-mccartney-thumb_gif (and it’s also a slightly more interesting song generally)

New or Egypt Station?

Difficult choice!  Both represent their scenes well, the relentless single-mindedness of one and the more schizo, unpredictable flow of the other. Hm. It’s interesting how GM reuses wywy ideas, and I really love that “sailing” motif that recurs. I wish there some tympanis in March…”Sea Of Time .” (this time)

 Mouth organ solo! “Little Child ” or “I’m A Loser “?

GEORGE: In fact, The Detroit Sound. JOHN: In fact, yes. GEORGE: In fact, yeah. Tamla-Motown artists are our favorites. The Miracles. JOHN: We like Marvin Gaye. GEORGE: The Impressions PAUL & GEORGE: Mary Wells. GEORGE: The Exciters. RINGO: Chuck Jackson. JOHN: To name but eighty.

I’m A Loser is so great, harmonica bit no exception.

I Should Have Known Better . I’m not sure which is the better riff so I’m going with the better song.

Not Guilty or Child Of Nature ?

Child Of Nature . I love Jealous Guy , but I would have preferred for Child Of Nature to have been recorded and potentially released on the White Album .

Which interesting piece of storytelling revolving around the life of a lonely female lead set to a background mostly consisting of string parts do you prefer: She’s Leaving Home or Eleanor Rigby ?

I've sat there on the barstool and I've looked him in the face.
He seemed a little haggard, but it did not slow him down,
he was humming to the neon of the universal sound.

I’m going to have to differ from QM and choose Not Guilty , because a) we already have Mother Nature’s Son ; b) Jealous Guy is supreme; and c) Not Guilty , the Beatles one, is an absolute delicious slice of acidic Harrisonics.

I do love the description of She’s Leaving Home and Eleanor Rigby , though. john-lennon-salute_gif I’ll go with Eleanor Rigby because I have a bit more history with it, it’s from Revolver , and my kid sister used to play air violin to it when she was like four (I think she got it from me ’cause I used to do it too) and it was super cute. So there’s that. a-hard-days-night-george-9

Love Me Do . It’s light and groovy, giving me a carefree feeling.

Indian style: Love You To or Within You Without You ?

Wow, that’s hard. I’m going to say Within You Without You because I love the opening part, and like the lyrics slightly (but only slightly) better.

Mother or God ?

Definitely God . The whole section of “I don’t believe in” ending with “I don’t believe in Beatles” is spine-chillingly powerful. That was the moment the band truly broke up, I guess. 

Paul as a drummer or as a pianist?

Paul is competent enough on drums, I think, but his piano playing is on another level – like on “Look Up The Number” where he comes up with five different styles of playing the chord changes.

“His sister Pam” or “His sister Shirley”?

I’m partial to Pam because she’s a swinging drag king. ahdn_george_06 Also, it scans better.

Paul as a trumpeteer or George as a violinist?

George as a violinist, for two reasons: 

1. George.

2. Paul can’t sing with a trumpet in his mouth. 😉

Mal as an alarm clock player or an anvil player?

Anvil. Firstly, it sounds cooler to say ‘I’m an anvil player’; secondly, anvil could actually be considered a legitimate percussion instrument.

Tea or sympathy?
